Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
(10 mins) Exit onto Marylebone Road and turn left. Past Madame Tussauds turn left into York Gate and follow York Bridge to the end. Pass through the large gates into the park and walk straight until you reach the theatre on your left.
The work of Charles Dickens is celebrated in two shows at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 201, bringing new life to some classic stories. One is this production of A Tale Of Two Cities and the other is a child friendly staging of Oliver Twist suitable for those above the age of 6.
With A Tale Of Two Cities Timothy Sheader, the Artistic Director of the Open Air Theatre, steps into the directors’ shoes and works from a script adapted from Dickens’ work by Matthew Dunster. With talented names like this working to bring the show to life audiences know that A Tale Of Two Cities is in safe hands in Regent’s Park in 2017.
The two cities of the title are London and Paris and we follow life in France in the run up to the French Revolution whilst also exploring in the British capital at the same time as social unrest rises.
Dickens’ novel was first published in 1859 and stands up alongside his best work. It has been adapted on numerous occasions over the century and a half since it emerged, with big screen, stage and radio versions making it into the public consciousness. As such it remains as important and revered now as it did back in the 19th century.
Timothy Sheader, director, has been the Artistic Director of the Open Air Theatre since 2007 and during his tenure in the role he has presented an array of stand-out shows that make the venue a welcome seasonal addition to the London theatre line-up.
A Tale Of Two Cities runs at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from Friday 7th July 2017 (concurrently with the child-friendly Oliver Twist, which plays daytimes from Monday 17th July 2017).
